Our scrapbook notes about Monaco

Monaco is the capital of the Principiality of Monaco, but usually referred to by its single state name. It is the second smallest independent state in the world (after the Vatican). A country in its own right but often assoiciated with France. Bordered on three sides by its French neighbour, with a fourth side looking out onto the Mediterranean. Monaco isn't the typical backpacker hotspot as it comes with a hefty price tag. However, day trips are easy to do, so you can in out of this country easily. Even if your wallet can't handle it, still check out the casino and watch the rich burn cash like no tomorrow.
